It was by faith that Rahab the prostitute was not destroyed with the people in her city who refused to obey God. For she had given a friendly welcome to the spies.Hebrews 11:31
The God Who Rescues
Before the walls of Jericho came tumbling down, several of the Israelites went to spy on the city to see what trouble awaited them. Rahab, a prostitute, took them in and gave them hospitality, or as this verse says, “a friendly welcome.” God rewarded her for her gentle spirit by rescuing her and her family when the Israelites took over Jericho.
I love stories like this and the fact that even people like Rahab are recognized in the Bible. It shows us that God can take anyone and change their lives. I wish we could see her life after she met the Lord that day she was rescued. God does miraculous things when His people submit to Him.
A Prayer to Remember
You are the God who saves. Thank you for rescuing me. May I never forget. Amen.
